Thoughts of Home, 2013
Mixed media

Created with international postage stamps, the figure in this work by Tucson, Arizona artist Barbara Brandel reflects places near and far, and the universal desire for the promise of the Four Freedoms. Her piece comments upon what she terms the Four Necessities—the importance of having “enough to eat, a place to live, a means to earn a living, and a community of friends and family.”
